Hi Nabeel,

The Package Manager is still an early-stage project and is not yet supported by Xcode. One of our near-term goals for the Package Manager is to move to a library-based architecture to allow for IDE integration; you can read about this goal at https://github.com/apple/swift-package-manager/blob/master/Documentation/PackageManagerCommunityProposal.md#library-based-architecture. We are planning to add great support for the Package Manager to Xcode. As Xcode is not part of the open source release, we don't plan to pre-announce a timeline or specific details of that Xcode support until we're ready to provide a beta version of Xcode that has it. We understand that this support is very important to our developer community.

Thank you,

	- Rick
